Alicia Young is a poet, editor, mother, former mortician, middling pianist, and above average tap dancer. She has the tongue of a harpy, the heart of a benevolent queen, the gall of a mad king, and is rumored to be a wee bit of a tramp. She is a modern day Southern belle, born on Kentuckyโ€™s bourbon trail, and 7th great granddaughter of Pocahontas. She enjoys black coffee and Wild Turkey in the morning, complimented by a fine cigar at night. Her Electra complex is the stuff of legend. She makes a hobby of causing blonde, Republican women to cry. Her dog, Vinnie Pupparino, is a former mafioso turned pro-wrestler. Ms.Young is the baddest woman on the planet with a set of nunchaku while any southern rock is playing. She was previously published in The Long Islander, Cultural Weekly, American Funeral Director, The Vagina Gun, The Musophobist, The Montucky Review, Take-It-To-The-Streets-Poetry, The Juice Bar, The Moronic Ox Literary & Cultural Journal, and The Mas Tequila Review. Ms. Young is the author of Hell on Heels, poems by Alicia Young, released in 2012 by Lady-Lazarus Press, and has two full-length books of poetry forthcoming in 2015.
